Thieves steal wheelchair Needed for war vet and brain tumour patient Neil CORBETT

ting a lot of use from her daughter Heather, who has been fighting brain tumours. She first had them when she was just four years old. Now 28, Heather is the mother of two children, aged eight and six; and the tumours have returned. Through 2009, she had seven brain surgeries. Merrett looks after her, and she needs the wheelchair. Replacing the stolen chair would cost Merrett an estimated $1,800, but thieves will likely get a small fraction of that. “It’s one of those extra twigs on the camel’s back,” said Merrett.

Last Wednesday, she left the chair at the front of her house, with some patio furniture. “It was probably just someone looking to make a quick buck,” she said.

No bans on tans Operators suggest industry-wide regulations

Kerrie-Ann SCHOENIT Abbotsford News

Local authorities have no immediate plans to follow Greater Victoria’s indoor tanning ban. The Capital Regional District passed a bylaw in January prohibiting salon use by teens under 18, following recommendations from medical health officers and anti-cancer groups. The bylaw requires final approval from the B.C. Ministry of Health, but if supported, violators could face fines of $250 to $2,000. “We’re not looking at it right now,” said Abbotsford bylaw manager Gordon Ferguson. “The city doesn’t typically regulate public health issues.” Officials from Fraser Health Authority and Vancouver Coastal Health are watching the situation in Victoria with interest, but neither organization has intentions of making regional recommendations at this time. Fraser Health spokesperson Roy ThorpeDorward said that decision could change if the new

Lisa Byers, owner of Perfect Tan in Abbotsford, says provincial regulation on tanning beds would be more beneficial than a ban based on user age. chief medical officer wants to pursue the issue. UV rays emitted by artificial tanning lamps are considered a Class 1 carcinogen, on par with arsenic and tobacco. Health Canada warns that tanning beds emit about five times as much UVA radiation as the sun. Exposure can cause skin cancer, eye damage, premature skin aging and

suppression of the immune system. Dr. Gillian Arsenault, regional medical health officer for Fraser Health, points out that any tanning is harmful because UV rays damage the DNA in cells. Tanned skin is a reaction to this radiation, she explained. “The earlier you start, the longer the duration, and

the more hits your cells take, the more chance that your body will not be able to repair in time and that you will get skin cancer,” said Arsenault. “That said, we need some sunlight and it’s more in the UVB range to stimulate vitamin D production. But vitamin D production is very efficient. If we start tanning, we’ve had too much.” Perfect Tan owner Lisa Byers believes industrywide regulations would be more beneficial than a complete ban on youth tanning. Enforcing a bylaw is difficult when tanning beds can be put in a variety of businesses like laundromats and gyms, she said. Byers would like to see a mandate ensuring that certified operators provide skin typing to all clients and control exposure times. For example, she says a person with skin type 1, fair skin which is most susceptible to burning, should not be permitted to use salon equipment. “Moderation totally Continued on A6

A crime-fighting first

NewsBytes PUPPY STOLEN

Abby and Langley cops focus on plague of break-ins and thefts Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) and Langley RCMP have partnered in a crime-fighting project that is believed to be the first of its kind among detachments across the Lower Mainland. Patrol divisions from the two sides have teamed up in pairs to target property crimes and offenders operating along the Abbotsford-Aldergrove border. Eight primary officers (four from each detachment) and another eight secondary members are involved, said Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald. He said Project Border Town was initiated to address an almost 100 per cent hike in property crime in the last year on both sides of the Station Road boundary. He said the area north of Fraser Highway has experienced mostly residential crimes, such as stolen vehicles and thefts from cars. The area south has recorded mainly commercial break-ins, including metal thefts.

RCMP video image

Abby and Langley officers will share a vehicle. The Gloucester industrial area, north of Fraser Highway near Hwy. 1, is another area of concern. MacDonald said several individuals have been identified as people of interest, and key locations have been pinpointed for the fencing of stolen goods. He said much “information sharing” had already being going on between the APD and Langley RCMP, but the partner-

ship will be more efficient. Previously, one patrol car and one officer from each detachment were designated to each side of the boundary. If either officer needed assistance, they had to call for back-up from their own detachment. Now, they will share a vehicle and operate in both jurisdictions. “Those two will get the benefit of information sharing and the benefits of two people working together on a common problem,” he said. Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks described the initiative as an example of cooperative policing to combat “crime that knows no borders.” “We work together quite well and quite often,” she said of the relationship with the APD. Project Border Town began last Tuesday (Feb. 1). More information about the initiative can be obtained by calling MacDonald at 604-864-4721or 604-835-6070. Marks can be reached at 604-532-3231 or 778-991-7932.

Report card time for schools Fraser Institute issues annual rankings Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Two Abbotsford schools are among the 20 most improved in the province over the last five years, according to the Fraser Institute’s elementary school “report card” released yesterday. Dasmesh Punjabi and Abbotsford Christian – both independent schools – each recorded jumps in their average rankings and in their overall ratings. The Fraser Institute school report card ranks schools in order of their results on the Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA), given annually to Grade 4 and 7 students. This year, 875 schools participated. Each school also receives a rating out of 10. Dasmesh Punjabi was ranked 30th in B.C. – second in the district – while Abbotsford Christian School (ACS) was 172nd. This com-

Dasmesh improved its rating from a five-year average of 7 to 9.4 for 2009-10, while

ACS went from 7 to 7.4. The principals of both schools credit the dedication of parents, teachers and students in making the improvements.

ROBBERY SUSPECT

Sulochana Chand of Dasmesh Punjabi said the school began using “intervention techniques” about four years ago to address literacy and language concerns in students. A total of 12.5 per cent of students at the school do not have English as their first language. Chand said the school has taken a “team approach” to addressing the issue. Teachers have taken training, and parents have supported their children’s learning at home, she said. “This has impacted positively on what we’re doing ... We’re taking it seriously.” ACS elementary principal Roy van Eerden said his school has also focused intently on student success, with “highcaliber” teachers who always strive for improvement. He said that although it’s great to be recognized, the school “doesn’t put a lot of weight” on the Fraser Institute numbers. School district superintendent Julie MacRae said the information obtained from

Animal welfare workers and the Abbotsford police are still looking for a thief, and the threemonth-old puppy taken from the city’s SPCA shelter. Chanelle, a brindle cane corso/mastiff mix, was stolen between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. Wednesday. She is shaved around her abdomen from being recently spayed, and has a large ID tattoo in her ear: 33ABIY. Dog kennels are always locked when the shelter is open to the public. The thief who took Chanelle removed a key from the shelter’s volunteer staging area and used it to unlock her kennel. Anyone who has seen the puppy, or who may know her location. is asked to call the BC SPCA emergency line at 604-834-7872 or Abbotsford Police at 604-859-5225.

A man in a dark-red station wagon is believed responsible for two armed robberies Saturday night in Chilliwack. And he may be the same man who robbed the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre on North Parallel Road in Abbotsford at about 11:20 p.m. on Sunday. RCMP received reports of armed robberies at the Parkwood Motor Lodge on Young Street just after 10 p.m. Saturday and about 50 minutes later at the Popkum Esso on Yale Road East. The suspect is described as black, about 25-35 years old, 5’10” to 6’ tall, with a short, black beard and a medium build. At the time of the robberies, he was wearing jeans, a light ball cap, and a dark zip-up hooded jacket that may have had “Vancouver 2010” on it. He was seen leaving in a dark-red station wagon. Anyone with information can call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611, the Abbotsford Police at 604-8595225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-222-TIPS.

No call worth a life Drive down virtually any street and it becomes obvious how effective the ban on cell phone use while driving has been. This month marks the first anniversary of the law, which prohibits the use of hand-held devices while driving. And yet, odds are you’ll see someone talking – or texting – while they’re behind the wheel. They are risking a lot. Not only do they face a $167 fine, they could incur three penalty points. Last year, police handed out nearly 32,000 tickets to distracted drivers. But the danger runs deeper than that. Police estimate distracted drivers are responsible for one-third of trafficrelated fatalities in the province. Last year there were 104 traffic deaths attributed to distracted drivers. The message is clear: pay attention or pay the price. Police say they’ll be stepping up enforcement of the new law this month. But it should not take the threat of

stronger enforcement to make us pay attention. Driving a motor vehicle is not a game. It requires attention and concentration. Things happen fast, and if drivers are not focused, tragedy can occur. And it’s not just cell phones that can be a problem. Pets, passengers, a cup of coffee, even a cigarette can all draw a driver’s eye off the road. It’s important that we not only pay attention while driving, but we set good examples for our children, who will one day be behind a wheel. Stay alert. Stay focused. And if the phone rings, or a text arrives, pull over to respond. If you’re an employer, initiate a company policy that makes driving safety a priority. That means employees out on the road know it’s OK to take a few moments before making contact. The bottom line is that there is simply no call or message worth a life. – Black Press

A looming disaster to which others pale Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand As the world agonizes over climate change and the progenitors of environmental apocalypse berate us all for creating a world that cannot survive, somehow the disaster that is located just a few miles south of the B.C. border is overlooked, ignored or is out-of-sight, out-of-mind. That disaster, the remains of the nuclear age that made Hanford Atomic Works, or as it is now known – Hanford nuclear reservation – was the centre of the western world for development of atomic bombs. Those that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki were developed there, as were most of the warheads that currently lie dormant in silos across America, housed in stealth submarines and cruise missiles. The disaster of Hanford is not so much the danger and devastation that its products could, did and can create,

but the waste that was created as a byproduct of the nuclear age. As a result, in the starkly beautiful desert lands of southeastern Washington State, there is a volume of waste that boggles the mind, that is almost impossible to make safe, and is and has been for years working its way through the ground into the Columbia River. Eventually, unless it is somehow contained, it will also get into the atmosphere. Paramount among the concerns to render the stuff relatively harmless is that in the process there is the potential for explosions that could, in effect, mimic the results of a bomb with all the attendant radiation and nuclear fall-out. The problem with Hanford is that its cleanup is monstrously huge, and perhaps impossible to achieve. There are massive amounts of nuclear waste stored in leaking underground vaults, in ‘ponds’ and bunkers. In addition, no one is even aware of what some of the chemical mixes really contain, and therefore the challenge on how to remediate the ‘stew’ is largely unknown. The potential cost of the clean-up ... in excess of 15 billion dollars, according to some, more than 12 billion by the

optimists. And in a best-case scenario, it won’t be completed until 2047, more than a century after the first waste tanks were buried, tanks that weren’t estimated to last more than a few years. Back in the late ’60s and ’70s, I often travelled through southern Washington,

There are massive amounts of nuclear waste stored in leaking underground vaults. along the Columbia River and, passing the Hanford reservation, would shudder at the thought of what was going on there … at what must have been going through the minds of folks who worked there building weapons that were destined, in the name of ‘freedom,’ to potentially annihilate the world. Fortunately, common sense prevailed, and with nuclear de-escalation, Hanford was finally closed in 1987. Its latent abil-

ity to cause mass death and destruction remains, however, in its vast repository of waste. While the brains that created the stuff knew how to build bombs, few bothered to think of processes to remediate their by-products, and fewer still knew enough, or cared enough, to build storage facilities that would last a millennium. In fact, what is there probably has created a toxic mix that will never be rendered harmless. What may make matters worse, is that there may not be enough money available to do it, either. Regardless, the effort must be made, and hopefully the financial decisionmakers are not bent on taking the lowest bidder. In the meantime the potential for disaster festers on, threatening not just eastern Washington but, with prevailing winds, everywhere else within a thousand (thousands?) kilometres. I’m not sure there is much any of us can do about this, other than to be aware of it, and to recognize that carbon emissions and global warming might be the least of our worries in the future.

A raise that is to include health benefits, a yearly allowance for attending community events and an annual conference allowance. With all the council promises and decisions that have turned in black holes, sucking millions of dollars out of the city budget, infrastructure (e.g. Matsqui Pool) that is falling apart, the city mired in a financial quagmire, the need for water rationing, how could anyone, even Abbotsford’s council, possibly think a raise

is either deserved or in order? What’s next? A golden retirement plan like the ones provincial and federal politicians have gifted themselves? If council has its way, raises will happen quietly, behind the closed doors of city hall, without any need to bother taxpayers with the knowledge that council has got yet another automatic yearly raise – unearned and undeserved. So much for Mayor George Peary’s “Getting good value for money [for taxpayers] is our number one priority.” I include council’s current salaries as

Beware hidden agenda

The citizens of Abbotsford should be more than a little suspicious about the reasons for the withdrawal from the Fraser Valley Regional District, which has served the city well. I think the eventual goal, once the city is on its own is to join the GVRD, bringing higher gas prices, money pouring westward, and more problems than the city has now. Beware of hidden agendas. B. Davies

well as the proposed salary raises and perks in stating that taxpayers are not getting value. Not that I don’t consider the $9,000 paid to Tim Dillon & Associates a misuse of city funds. It is just that $9,000 seems a fairly cheap price, perhaps even a bargain, when you contrast the outcome, the proposed nine per cent pay raise, with the nearly 50 per cent (44 per cent) pay raise council arrived at and gave themselves on their own three years ago. If there was any relationship between ‘value for money’ and the wages paid

to Abbotsford’s current council, taxpayers would be getting an extremely large

refund of the wages city council has paid itself. Instead council is

going to give itself ongoing yearly salary increases, benefits and perks. Business

as usual – council gets the mine and taxpayers get the shaft. James Breckenridge

A new legal front has been opened by advocates battling for the right to drink and distribute raw milk. Farmer Alice Jongerden, the founder of Chilliwack-based Home On The Range cowsharing co-op, is mounting a constitutional challenge of a 2010 court order that bars her from producing or distributing unpasteurized milk, which B.C. law deems a public health hazard. “We want the freedom to make our own nutritional choice,” Jongerden said. “We just want to be able to have the right to consume fresh milk if we so desire.” Her court challenge argues the prohibition against unpasteurized milk is a violation of her right to liberty and security of the person under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and

that the stiff criminal penalties are unjust. Violators can be jailed for three years and fined up to $3 million. If she succeeds in overturning the section of the Public Health Act that bans distribution of unlicensed and unpasteurized milk, Jongerden said she intends to resume operation of the raw milk dairy, which she handed over to Ontario raw milk advocate Michael Schmidt last fall to avoid contempt-ofcourt sanctions. Schmidt has continued the operation under the name OurCows and claimed he is distributing the milk not for food, but as a line of cosmetics. Fraser Health planned to send inspectors to determine whether OurCows is merely a new attempt to sidestep the ban, as Jongerden had initially attempted by labeling raw milk ‘not for human consumption.’ However, Fraser Health spokesman Roy Thorpe said

the health authority will hold back on further enforcement action until the new court challenge is complete. Jongerden said she doesn’t aim to market raw milk directly to the public, but only to the cow share’s 450 Lower Mainland members. Since farmers can drink milk from their own cows, members argued they were merely collecting liquid dividends from the cows they own and that there was no public sale of milk. Victory in court might effectively legalize raw milk dairies. Jason Graatl, Jongerden’s lawyer, said the province should simply regulate unpasteurized dairies, apply a regime of inspections and require warning labels. B.C.’s insistence on pasteurization is less about safety, he said, and more about extending the product shelf life and protecting “industrial” milk producers from raw milk competition.

Salmon probe extended Want to know more about our Abbotsford Heat hockey team?

Black Press

Justice Bruce Cohen will have an extra 14 months to get to the bottom of the mystery of the dwindling Fraser River sockeye salmon. His inquiry into the downturn has been granted an extension, with a final report now due by June 30, 2012 instead of this spring. Cohen cited the complexity of the commission’s work, the difficult and timeconsuming document disclosure process and large number of participants in obtaining more time. The commission’s budget is also increasing, from $14 million to an estimated $25 million. Hearings are now slated to run until at least September. The commissioner is to make recommendations on improving the future sustainability of the sockeye fishery, including potential changes in policies, practices and procedures of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO). The delay has caused anger among First Nations that are close to treaties that can’t be concluded until the

S M IS

S NE’ I T S EN VAL ONU B RAW D DON

’T

federal government signs off on guaranteed shares of the salmon fishery. Six treaty tables where agreementsin-principle are close are in limbo because Ottawa won’t finalize treaty fishing rights until it receives Cohen’s findings, according to Sophie Pierre, chief commissioner of the B.C. Treaty Commission. “Because of the delay, what we’re concerned about is the growing debt First Nations are facing,” she said,

referring to the loans aboriginal groups must incur to cover their negotiating costs. “We have First Nations negotiating tables that are fast approaching the tipping point where what they’re going to get in terms of a cash offer for self-government is going to be less than what they owe for going through these negotiations. So what’s the point?” Also critical of the delay is Conservative MP John Cummins (Richmond-Delta East),

who argues Cohen is devoting too much money to his own staff and scientific studies without probing DFO’s management of the fishery hard enough. “I see it as throwing good money after bad,” he said. Testimony this month is concentrating on harvest management issues. The judicial inquiry was called after the collapse of the 2009 sockeye run, when just over a million fish returned, about a tenth the expected number.

Variety Club brings smiles to local kids

Jared F riesen loves his new set of wheels, which provides him with more independence, physical exercise, and the ability to participate in activities with family and friends. A big smile spreads across his face as he pedals down the street in front of his house. “It’s awesome,” he said, while ringing his bicycle bell. The bright red tricycle was custom-designed for the 11-year-old Abbotsford boy with cerebral palsy. It’s equipped with straps and pulleys that can be adjusted as Friesen grows. Handles attached to the bike seat also allow someone to push, pull or stop him from behind. “It just gives him

The toddler suffers from Williams Syndrome and requires special formula. local social worker helped them get in contact with Variety. The charity agreed to provide Calcilo as long as Sophie needs it. “It’s been a huge weight lifted off our shoulders and it’s been a real blessing,” said her mom Tanya. “It made us breathe easier knowing she was getting the proper diet she needed to develop.” With Williams Syndrome, Sophie also experiences hearing hypersensitivity, lack of depth perception, learning setbacks and muscle weakness. She had open-heart surgery when she was only eight months old, followed by eye surgery. However, none of this has kept her from being a happy, energetic toddler. “She has the syndrome, but it’s not what defines her,” said Tayna. “She’s just Sophie.” The Farrs have donated to the Variety Club Show of Hearts Telethon for several years, never thinking they would need the organization’s assistance. It’s always been a cause close to their hearts. “There are so many families out there that need help,” said Tanya. “Until you’ve been in a situation where you’ve had a child who has a medical condition and who needs that extra help or who is sick, you just never know.” The 45th annual telethon airs on Global TV Feb. 12 and 13.

Flu shots are still available through public health units, doctorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offices and pharmacists. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vaccine

does cover the H3N2 strain spreading in eastern Canada. The flu vaccine is recommended and free for the elderly, very young children, and people of all ages with chronic medical conditions as they are at highest risk of hospitalization and death due to complications

from influenza. The province expanded Pharmacare coverage in December to include two brands of antiviral drugs, Tamiflu and Relenza. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now covered for people at high risk of complications and who have flu symptoms during the 2010-11 flu season, as well as all residents at long-term care homes. Most young healthy people recover from the flu without difficulty, but those at high risk may be helped with antivirals, which work best if taken at the first sign of symptoms appearing. The flu is potentially a serious respiratory illness and comes on suddenly with fever and cough as well as general aches and fatigue.

Stayin’ alive On the playoff bubble, UFV men’s hoopsters salvage split vs. Winnipeg

Heat happy with Kotalik

Three games into Ales Kotalik’s tenure with the Abbotsford Heat, the AHL club is pleased with the early returns. “He’s brought us everything we hoped he would,” Heat assistant coach Troy Ward said. “He’s brought us offence, he’s brought us experience. “I like how he’s handled himself and how he’s carried himself.” Kotalik, a veteran of eight NHL seasons who is in the secKOTALIK ond year of a three-year, $9 million contract, was reassigned to Abbotsford by the NHL parent Calgary Flames on Jan. 28. The 32-year-old forward joined the Heat last week for a three-games-in-three-days gauntlet on the road, beginning with a 4-3 shootout win over the Chicago Wolves on Friday and continuing with a pair of 3-2 losses to the Rockford IceHogs and the Lake Erie Monsters. Kotalik made himself conspicuous offensively, posting three assists. He’s still looking for his first goal, but it’s not for lack of effort – he registered 17 shots over the three games, including 10 on Saturday against Rockford. Kotalik’s linemates for the

Mathematically speaking, Saturday’s road game against the Winnipeg Wesmen wasn’t necessarily a must-win for the University of the Fraser Valley men’s basketball team. But in practical terms, it was a game the Cascades simply had to have. Just 24 hours earlier, the last-place Wesmen had dealt UFV an 88-73 defeat to relegate the Cascades to ninth place in Canada West. Only the top eight teams make the playoffs. While UFV (7-13) remained in ninth in the wake of Saturday’s 75-68 triumph – eight-place Calgary (812) swept two games against seventh-place Manitoba (9-11) on the weekend – the clutch victory means the Cascades’ playoff goal is much more realistic. “It definitely was a mustCascades coach CRADDOCK win,” Barnaby Craddock acknowledged. “If we couldn’t get the W on Saturday, I just didn’t know if we’d be playing good enough basketball (to make the playoffs).” UFV guard Joel Friesen came through in a big way in the win, pouring in 24 points on 8-for-11 shooting, including a trio of threepointers. Zeon Gray (18 points) and Sam Freeman (14) also hit double figures. The Cascades wrap up the regular season on the road at Lethbridge (Feb. 11-12) and at home against Brandon (Feb. 18-19). Both teams are below UFV in the standings. Manitoba and Calgary, the teams the Cascades are chasing, finish the schedule against higher-ranked foes. “Basically, it’s playoff time for us,” noted Craddock, who figures his team will need at least three wins in the final four games to sneak into the post-season. “We’ve definitely lost a few games throughout the year we think we could have won, but the door is still open for us. We have to earn our way in.” Continued on A25

 This fourth generation Nissan Quest is a highly maneuverable vehicle. With it’s long wheelbase and overall length, the Quest both hugs the road and provides a roomy interior. The most striking aspect of the new Quest design, however, is the full surround privacy glass, black sash molding and chrome trim accents, which combine with the wide, low stance and muscular front end to give Quest the most dynamic and distinctive appearance in class.

With one-touch power sliding doors, quick release fold-flat seats, an Advanced Climate Control System, and rear storage well to name just a few, Quest provides the innovation to help make the impossible possible on a daily basis. Just like parents do. “The all-new Nissan Quest ‘gets’ parenting. While minivans remain one of the most maligned symbols of adulthood, where some see them as a surrendering of youth and fun, Nissan sees the minivan as a celebration of family life – not only for moms on weekdays, but for fun times with the

entire family on weekends,” said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc. “We view Quest as a reward to parents for doing just that – parenting.” Designed with purpose inside and out, the 2011 Quest offers functionality, unique styling and comfort for all occupants. “While it can’t promise to make parenting easier, or your kids better behaved, the new Quest can make your life as a parent a little less chaotic,” adds Castignetti. “This new dimension in minivans was conceived to provide smart prioritization, fulfilling the traditional, often child-centric needs of everyday life, but also the more emotional aspects of personal style, driving pleasure and unforgettable family vacations,” said Castignetti. “It’s designed to mirror the multi-purpose comfort and warmth of a home’s ‘great room’ and lets you take it along on the road.”

Among the new Quest’s available “Innovation for Family” design features are:  A sophisticated, modern exterior and interior design that provides a fresh approach to the minivan segment – including a “fluid sculpture” body with full surround glass treatment  One-touch power sliding side doors that easily unlock and open with a single touch, even with arms and hands full of groceries  Dual Opening glass moonroofs (two), providing refreshing breezes to front and rear occupants when open  2nd row power windows  Standard Quick Release Fold-Flat 2nd and 3rd row seats to make a flat load floor, and available 3rd row powerreturn seatback on LE  Quick Comfort heated front seats with advanced staged heating system design  Removable 2nd row console with cupholders and lid  Always-available large, covered Permanent Rear Storage Well  Advanced Climate Control System (ACCS) intelligent HVAC system with Plasmacluster™ air purifier, Grape Polyphenol Filter and auto recirculation  Blind Spot Warning (BSW) system and RearView Monitor  Conversation mirror, which helps enhance visibility and conversation with children in the 2nd and 3rd rows  Standard 2nd and 3rd row theater seating with available large rear 11inch color monitor and auto bright function  Easy maneuverability, with small turning radius and front triangle windows for enhanced visibility  Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Easy Fill Tire Alert, which alerts you when proper tire inflation is reached

For the first time in school history, Columbia Bible College will play host to a Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA) national championship tournament. CBC has been awarded the men’s volleyball nationals for 2012. The eight-team tourney will feature seven top college teams from across the country, plus the host Bearcats. The event will run March 8-10 at 1,000-seat Columbia Place.

“It’s a big deal for us,” CBC athletic director and men’s volleyball coach Rocky Olfert said. “This is the first time we’re going to be hosting an event of this magnitude. It’s maybe a bit overwhelming, but it’s very exciting at the same time. I think it’s time for us to step up and host something like this.” Hosting rights for CCAA national championships rotate from province to province on an annual basis, and the Bearcats were the only B.C. program

Pilots bounce back

The Abbotsford Pilots inched closer to clinching first place in the Harold Brittain Conference by splitting a pair of games on the weekend. The local junior B hockey club dropped a 4-3 decision to the Ridge Meadows Flames in a rare Friday road game, but rebounded for a 5-3 triumph over the Mission Icebreakers on Saturday at MSA Arena. The results left the Pilots seven points clear of the second-place Port Moody Black Panthers. Abbotsford has one game in hand with seven games remaining in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League regular season.

The Pilots out-shot the Flames 41-32 on Friday, including a 24-7 edge in the first period. But Ridge Meadows stole the victory on Todd Fletcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power play goal with one second remaining in the third period. On Saturday, Missionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Travis Park opened the scoring at 2:42 of the second period, but the Pilots responded with four consecutive goals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including three on the power play â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to take control. Blueliner Garett Lynum scored twice in the win, while Riley Lamb, Justin Dorey and Brock Wellicome also tallied for Abbotsford. The Pilots are back in action on Friday, when they host the Richmond Sockeyes (7:30 p.m., MSA Arena).

If the UFV womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team is looking for a theme song, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Takinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Care of Businessâ&#x20AC;? would be a natural fit. Like the Cascades menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoopsters, the UFV women find themselves in ninth place with four games to go. But at 8-12, Al Tuchschererâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad has firm control of its playoff destiny. The Cascades are currently trailing Thompson Rivers University (9-13) for the final Canada West post-season berth, but they have two games in hand on the WolfPack. Given that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re finishing up against lowly Lethbridge (4-16) and Brandon (0-20), UFV also stands a reasonable chance of overtaking seventh-place Calgary (10-10). Tuchscherer is usually an understated type, but the Cascades coach declared he still likes his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playoff chances following a pair of weekend losses to a very good Winnipeg squad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to take care of business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be there,â&#x20AC;? Tuchscherer promised. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we do what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing the past month . . . weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be fine. And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be scary when we get into the playoffs.â&#x20AC;? Winnipeg, ranked ninth in the nation, got a first-hand glimpse at how scary the youthful Cascades can be when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re clicking on all cylinders. UFV pushed Winnipeg to overtime in Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opener, ultimately falling 79-70. On Saturday, the Wesmen shot a sizzling 12for-22 from beyond the are in a 75-47 win.
